The Black Shuck’s forces gather just beyond the mist . . .

Captain Justice Kasric knows how complicated family can be. The escalating Human-Faerie war has scattered and wounded her siblings and transformed her parents beyond recognition. After narrowly escaping yet another dangerous clash, fifteen-year-old Justice has had enough. She’s determined to defeat the Black Shuck, the mysterious leader controlling the Faerie invasion of London, but if Justice hopes to stand a chance at victory, she’ll have to do the impossible: reunite her family and lead them against the looming Faerie Armada.

​With her mother and brother at the helm of the enemy fleet, and the prophesized Seven Virtues slipping out of reach, Justice more than has her work cut out for her. Even if she can save England, the cost may be higher than she’s willing to pay.

If only nearly every other member of her family weren’t either in immediate danger of dying—or attempting to kill her!

​Forced to make dangerous pacts with more than one unpredictable ally, only Justice can decide how far she’ll go to save London. Is it worth sacrificing even a member of her own family.

Author Interview

If you were stuck on a deserted island, which 3 books would you want with you?

I’m thinking one for fun and comfort, one classic that really bears up under repeated reads, and one I’ve always wanted to know well but haven’t actually read yet, so, in that order: Zelazny’s Lord of Light (or Chronicles of Amber, if I can pick a collection), Hemingway’s In Our Time, Collection of E.E. Cummings poetry.

How long have you been writing?

Almost 40 years. Maybe more. Since I can remember, honestly.

Who is your favorite character in the series?

Justice, of course. That’s how you decide who gets to be the main character! That being said, Brocara the dragon was a joy to write.

In today’s tech savvy world, most writers use a computer or laptop. Have you ever written parts of your books on paper?

I have written entire books on paper in the beginning. But not, the default for both is on the PC, of course, but not always. Writing on paper is a great tool to getting unstuck, particularly in the outlining and planning stage. I usually maintain one outline in a word doc, but redo that outline on paper, usually from memory, as many as 10-20 times during the writing, to rethink things that I missed. Or I’ll do it in fragments, outlining just Faith’s portion on paper to pick at the pieces. Shadows Over London took me a much longer time to write than most of my books do now, so that process ran super long.

Where do your books take place? Is there a reason why you chose that setting?

I apparently have a fascination with Victorian England, because I have two series that take place there: The Empire of the House of Thorns (with Justice and her misfit crew) and the Classified Dossier – Sherlock Holmes & Dracula (where I play with Holmes, Dracula and a number of other iconic characters).
